This is the second book in The Vagrant Trilogy series.
The Malice, the sword that could change the fate of the world, is waking and it wants to go into battle. The only problem is that The Vagrant doesn’t want to fight. He’s made a home for himself, and wants to leave the world to it’s fate. But there is another who wants to take up the call to arms, a woman called Vesper, and her part in this story has only just begun.
The author has continued to draw me into his world with this book, creating a characters and places you invest yourself in, wanting to follow them into whatever fate lays before them. All round, a pretty good story.
